The Avengers Revealed for Knight Model’s Marvel Universe Miniature Game

Today the Avengers have been revealed for Knight Model‘s upcoming tabletop game Marvel Universe Miniature Game. This comes the day after the Guardians of the Galaxy were revealed, and the X-Men preceded that. The game will be released with three starter sets, Guardians of the Galaxy, X-Men, and Avengers, that will each included four metal miniatures, character cards, and a mini rulebook.

The Avengers are made up of Steve Rogers as Captain America, Tony Stark as Iron Man, Thor, and Natasha Romanova aka Black Widow. We don’t know who will be in the blister that will be released along with the starter set.

Each character’s description sounds like they embody their comic counterparts. Captain America is a leader who provides boosts to his teammates. His Vibranium Shield acts to help boost his defense and can be used offensively attacking multiple enemies as it bounces off of them in the air. Iron Man is all about the suit which allows him to fly with speed, his built in offensive repulsor blasts, missiles, and the Unibeam. Thor fills the role of the flying tank in his strength, and Mjolnir. He can also bring down lightning and like Cap, use his hammer as a shield. Finally Black Widow is about the stealth and close combat. It sounds like she has an infiltrate ability and uses close combat, firearms, and her Widow’s Bite to take on her opponents.

So, now that all three starter sets have been revealed, which will you be getting? I can’t decide, so I guess it’s all of them for me!

Wizkids has started to preview figures for it’s upcoming Heroclix Captain America set.  Up first is Steve Rogers.

Heroclix Steve RogersFrom the Wixkids website:

At 99 points, Steve Rogers is a powerhouse addition to your force! Always the first to leap into danger, Steve Rogers manuevers into position with early-dial Running Shot, while Energy Shield/Deflection helps protect him from ranged retaliation.

Mid-dial, Steve Rogers changes tactics and utilizes subterfuge to accomplish his tasks with Stealth.  Striking from the shadows, Steve Rogers attacks with Ranged Combat Expert and with a healthy dose of Willpower, he can act two turns in a row without fear of pushing damage!  Toward the end of his dial, Steve Rogers picks up Combat Reflexes and Close Combat Expert as he demonstrates his decades of martial experience.

With a full dial of Leadership, Steve Rogers is perfect to lead your force into battle, but that’s not all! Friendly figures with the S.H.I.E.L.D. and Avengers keywords get an additional bonus when adjacent to Steve Rogers, befitting his new status as Commander in both organizations.

With consistent and aggressive combat values, a host of very useful powers, a versatile Keyword selection, his incredible The Focal Point trait, as well as two great Team Abilities,  Steve Rogers will be an excellent leader for any team!
